iTeos Therapeutics Announces Eight Data Presentations for A2A Receptor Antagonist and Anti-TIGIT Antibody Programs at AACR Annual Meeting 2019

Gosselies, Belgium and Cambridge, MA – March 29, 2019 – iTeos Therapeutics SA, a privately-held biotechnology company developing novel cancer immunotherapies, today announced that it will present data on the efficacy of its innovative and differentiated A2A receptor antagonist, EOS100850, as well as its human antibody directed against TIGIT, EOS884448, in eight posters at the upcoming American Association of Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting 2019, taking place from March 29 - April 3, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. 

“We continue to be excited by the preclinical data from our two immuno-oncology programs, both of which promise mono- and combination therapy potential with other anti-cancer treaments,” said Michel Detheux, President and Chief Executive Officer of iTeos Therapeutics. “The preclinical data being presented at AACR demonstrate key differentiation of our A2A receptor antagonist, such as unique prolonged effects of high potency within the adenosine-rich tumor microenvironment and anti-tumor activity in several cancer models and with different drug combinations. The data also provide a deeper understanding of the adenosine pathway in solid tumors. Additionally, our research on the TIGIT activation pathway sheds light on promising strategies to restore anti-tumor immunity.” 

The details of the poster presentations are as follows:

About iTeos Therapeutics 
iTeos Therapeutics is a privately-held, clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company dedicated to transforming the lives of persons living with cancer by designing and developing next generation immunotherapies. The Company’s lead program, EOS100850, is an adenosine A2A receptor antagonist currently in a Phase 1/1b study. A second program, a fully human ADCC-enabling anti-TIGIT antibody (EOS884448), is expected to enter the clinic in second half of 2019. Based in Gosselies, Belgium and Cambridge, MA, iTeos Therapeutics was founded through the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research (LICR) and the de Duve Institute (Université Catholique de Louvain). In 2018, the Company completed a $75 million (€64 million) Series B financing led by MPM Capital, along with new investors HBM Partners, 6 Dimensions Capital and Curative Ventures. Previous investors, including Fund +, VIVES II and SRIW, as well as SFPI, also participated in this funding round. For more information, please visit www.iteostherapeutics.com.
